Lyrics

Wear a smile for Jesus,
As you pass along,
Cheer this world of sorrow
With a happy song;
If a cloud should lower,
Hiding all the blue,
Smiles will rift the gloom and
Let the sunshine thro’.

Refrain

Smiling, smiling, happy ev’ry day;
Smiling, smiling, up the narrow way;
On the Mount of Pisgah
Some day we shall stand,
And with smile of triumph
View the promised land.

Wear a smile for Jesus,
Speak a word of cheer;
Many hearts are sighing
’Neath their burdens here;
Like the sparkling dewdrops
On the drooping flow’rs,
Smiles will cheer and brighten
E’en the darkest hours.

Refrain

Wear a smile for Jesus—
Do not stop to weep;
Tho’ some disappointment
O’er your pathway creep,
Smiles will lighten labor,
Soothe and banish care;
Scatter freely, then, your
Brightest everywhere.

Refrain
